“Their God is my God”

Dear Friend,

In my previous Liberty Relief International update, I shared about the amazing, life-changing, and eternity-altering transformation that comes with accepting Jesus Christ as Savior. Second Corinthians 5:17 promises us, “If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature.” That verse also tells us that old things pass away and all things become new.

In ISIS-ravaged and war-torn nations across the Middle East, tens of thousands of Muslims have come to faith in Christ. One of our Christ-centered partners in the region says many Muslim men and women are leaving Islam after encountering Jesus through dreams and visions. Others are moved by the testimonies of Christians who have experienced horrific persecution in Muslim-dominated areas.

On Monday, I told you about 20 Egyptian Christians kidnapped and beheaded by ISIS terrorists on a Libyan beach in February 2015. I also shared about the 21st victim that day.  Mathew Ayairga was from Chad and reportedly not a Christian. Each of his fellow captives was brutally murdered after refusing to deny Christ. But when Mathew was asked to publicly reject Jesus, he told his executioners: “Their God is my God.” What an amazing testimony of Mathew’s faith and the example set by his fellow captives in the face of death!

New believers and persecuted Christians in the Middle East are making courageous stands for Jesus Christ regardless of the consequences. People who see that firsthand are being moved by their testimonies, and lives are being changed for eternity. What’s even more amazing is that it’s happening in the face of horrific ISIS evil and in the midst of brutal civil war.

I want to honor the courage and sacrifice of these brothers and sisters by increasing our efforts to sponsor Bibles through one of our ministry partners in the Middle East. They can deliver copies of God’s Word inside Muslim-majority nations for just $5 each!
